Rob Marshall Signs On To Remake ‘The Thin Man’ With Johnny Depp

robb marshall Rob Marshall has officially signed on to direct a remake of the 1934 classic The Thin Man and his Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides star Johnny Depp is attached to top line the pic. For once, I’m actually on board with a remake. The original cast the duo of William Powell and Myrna Loy as a married couple that solved crimes together. With plenty of witty banter to spare the film earned four Oscar nominations. The revamp will have to include another witty female co-star for Depp as they go along solving crimes and though this isn’t really any different then, say, Sherlock Holmes, it’ll still be worth watching, if only for Depp.

So who will play his wise cracking wife? I’m going to suggest Isla Fisher or Anna Faris but only because it gives me the excuse to look at their pictures.
